Wow! That patch definitely cured the freeze/blam occurence. With some limited testing after following your instructions (and a reboot) the simple selection of Blu-ray in the Build panel, or the import of HD footage, does not cause a Windows freeze.

Thank you for posting this answer! Afte crash after crash when tying to work with HD material I re-installed Win7 64bit, bought a better mainboard, tried faster memory, tried a new blu-ray drive and power supply before finding your post. I scoured the posts about crashing and hardware.
Cheers to you.
